Description

It is just about impossible to find an original 5E7 Bandmaster anymore. To begin with, they didn't make all that many of them. Secondly, the output transformers were undersized and many, if not most, self destructed long before now. But every once in a while, one comes up that never got pushed to its limits and all the iron is still there and still working. Add to that original electronics including the filter caps and the original tweed on the cabinet and you get a collector grade Bandmaster that's going to be hard to replace. I'd keep it for myself if I could afford to. My main player is a 57 Bandmaster (with a Mercury OT) and I'd love an all original one for myself but I keep reminding myself that I'm running a business here. All three Jensen P10R's have their original cones-one appears to have a very small repair but it doesn't affect the tone. I wouldn't gig with 60 year old cones anyway but they sound great at moderate volume. There is a 1" by 1" patch in the tweed on the top of the amp (made from the excess tweed inside the top of the amp so it matches exactly) It has a repro handle on it but I have a near perfect original put aside and is included.
